Don't do it. MS has enough money.

I think the best thing is to try to set up a dual boot or run Windows 8/Windows 8.1 preview on a Virtual Machine. If you like its interface and the Metro App / Windows Store concept, you'll likely upgrade to it. For me, I always try before deciding.

I recommend Free TeamViewer Download for Windows
which always works and never lets you down. I often have several TV windows open for installs I'm helping with all over the world and it never hesitates. You can reboot and it will notify you when your partner PC has reconnected. It's features are unparalleled and free.

I use a desktop and get around just fine with keyboard and mouse. I use just a few Metro apps and run 99% in the desktop.

I think for now I'm going to stick with Windows 7 if there isn't an appreciable gain in speed or anything. It still baffles me why they're trying to do a 1 size fits all, even apple has a fairly static desktop design and a mobile platform that is a flavor os OSX rather than trying to force the same thing onto everything
